windows7 host, virtual box linux guest, trying to do samba


hi, windows 7 host, virtualbox 3.0.12, slackware 12.2 guest

i have virtualbox/slackware guest using dhcp and has a 10.0.... ip address

rc.firewall on gateway has 192.168.0.0/24 for local_net

how can i get the 192.... range to play samba with 10.... range?

i know i can get at host files using shared folders, i'd like to
get at network folders from the slackware guest

is it possible to static a guest 192.... ip address and not use dhcp? or some other config, like spoof the dhcp ip to 192....

i can provide additional info as needed

thank you

Well you could do host only networking and put a proxy on the host to proxy requests from the guest. You could also use bridged networking placing the guest on the same subnet and network as the host. Additionally with NAT networking you can go out but not come back. i.e. if guest network is 10.10.10.x and host network is 192.168.100.x I can access 192.168.100.x from the guest network but cannot access the guest network from the host network. So with this in mind, if you had a DNS server on the host network for instance typing a host DNS name into the guest browser would connect you to the host on the VM host network.

The easiest thing is to bridge your virtual adapter then they will be able to see each other only takes like 5 minutes to shut down VM change setting start-up again.
